Daniel LaCour , 41, of the 8th Ward of New Orleans waits to be rescued Monday, Aug. 29, 2005, after tidal surge overwhelmed a levee near communities in Orleans and St. Bernard parishes, flooding a majority of the homes to their rooflines. He said he and his brother, Glen LaCour, 30, had stayed behind to allow other members of the family to evacuate because there was not enough room in their car.
